Yay it's done! This was supposed to be for my daughter for Christmas, but better late than never!

This afghan is made from Brown Sheep superwash wool in *alabaster* color. I should have writtne down how many balls of yarn I ordered, so I could say how many it took. I made it using the *Peaceful* pattern from *The Big Book of Quick Knit Afghans* availabale via Amazon.com.

I was happy with the pattern and it was quite easy.The only drawback (and this is what makes it quick) is that you use a size 17 circ and 2 balls of yarn at a time. So if you don't mind the somewhat loose texture its fine. I started this Sept 15.... so it took me 4 mos! I have done several pairs of socks in the meantime too....

That is such a nice gift. Very pretty. I love the neutral color --it will go with anything!

Nice job! :cheering:

Lovely. Good job.

I just started "Grandma's Lots of Love Afghan" and already I am figuring about 4-5 mos. How big is the actual afghan?
